Want to learn something new or hone your existing skills? The Somerton U3A may just provide the answer. Its Enrolment Day takes place from 10.00am till 12 noon on Friday 25 August in the Edgar Hall, 8 Cary Court, Somerton Business Park, TA11 6SB, providing a great opportunity to see all the groups that Somerton U3A has to offer.
This local branch has over 500 members both from Somerton itself as well as surrounding villages and offers over 50 interest groups — sociable, intellectual, physical and educational. These can range from Art and Computing to Singing and Walking and all are fun. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery.
Every month the Somerton U3A has a social coffee morning with speakers covering a broad range of subjects. If you can't make the Enrolment Day, you can go along to the Edgar Hall at 10.00am on the fourth Friday of each month to find out more.
Interested? Then go to the website: https://u3asites.org.uk/somerton/groups or call Joan Banbury, the membership secretary, on 01458 272803.
